The One Classroom School in Egypt: An Evaluative Study. Final Report.
International Development Research Centre, Ottawa (Ontario).; National Centre for Educational Research, Cairo (Egypt).
This is a report of a study designed to evaluate the one-classroom school in Egypt. The one-classroom school was designed for remote areas to provide compulsory education for children 6-8 years old and a new opportunity for education for those who dropped out or failed formal school. The schools were established in 1975-76 and the evaluation was conducted 5 years later. The study was designed to provide information on: (1) the current status of the schools, student learning, and selected variables related to the school environment and (2) ways to improve the performance and efficiency of the schools. The report is divided into seven chapters: (1) The Study and Its Scope; (2) Objectives and General Features of the One-Classroom School; (3) Methodology and Steps of the Study; (4) Realities of Material and Human Potentialities; (5) Learning Level of School Subjects; (6) Attitudes toward the One-Room Classroom; and (7) Summary and Recommendations. Recommendations consider current practice and ways to improve the curriculum, instructional materials, teaching, learning, and the school and community environment. (RH)
